Safety is everyone’s responsibility


Check before you begin

Do you need to complete a journey management plan? Are you driving an oversize or heavy load? Are you transporting explosives or dangerous goods? Are you traveling to a remote area? Is your journey longer than 2 hours in a single leg? Are you test driving a Protected Mobility Vehicle?

Are you a competent person authorized to drive this vehicle? Are you confident and have you been assessed to use a trailer, drive different types of heavy vehicles, operate loading restraints or act as a guide or spotter?

Is the vehicle fit for purpose? Is it suitable for the task and the load mass and dimensions? Check the compliance plates and operating manual if you’re not sure.

Is the vehicle safe? Conduct a visual check. Does your light vehicle hold the current 5-star ANCAP rating? is your heavy vehicle equipped with reversing beepers and cameras? Has the vehicle been regularly inspected and maintained to a high standard? Have you seen documented evidence of weekly pre-start checks?

Have you checked and photographed the load restraints? Do they match up to documented procedures, like the Load Restraint Guide?

Does your load need to be de-identified and transported separately for security reasons?

Is your vehicle fitted with emergency equipment? Does it have a: first aid kit, fire extinguisher, torch, hi-visvest or jacket and emergency warning triangles?

Any faulty vehicle should be tagged and quarantined to prevent operation.
